I also experienced this when i built iptables on 13th June, & resolved 
it by using version 1.3.7.

Apologies for not bringing it up at the time, but i deviated from the 
book by building against the raw kernel-headers (2.6.21.1), patched with 
patch-o-matic-ng for additional features, so i wasn't sure the problem 
would affect others...
